Here’s your jam-packed guide for an epic weekend in the Toon on 05.03.22 and 06.03.22!


Calling all coffee connoisseurs

Pumphreys has taken NE1’s coffee scene to the next level! Nestled inside the Grainger Market, head to Alley 2 and dive into their incredibly delicious coffee creations. Pair it with a pastry or two, and your Saturday is off to a flying start!



Top tunes at TUSK!

Ooh! A new event to sink your teeth into! TUSK North is arriving at The Lit & Phil this weekend and it sounds mega! Head to Westgate Road for an action-packed programme featuring an extensive range of music from the city’s brightest stars! From mesmeric trombone solos to gothic black metal music, TUSK North is an eclectic festival not to be missed!



Fancy an Italian?

Time for a lunchtime treat we think! Swing by Insieme on Westgate Road where you can enjoy a range of traditional Italian dishes with fabulous wine pairings! It’s the perfect place to lap up bubbling pots of hearty Italian cuisine and wash it all down with a cheeky glass of good wine!



Howe-ay the lads!

The best team in the world take on Graham Potter’s high flying Brighton side in a crucial Premier League clash! With new signings such as Dan Burn, Matt Targett and the second-best ever Brazilian player (after big Joelinton!) Bruno Guimarães beginning to make an impact on the field, get over to St. James’ Park and roar the lads on!



Garage revival

World HQ have got Saturday night sorted! Swing by Carliol Square as Dr Banana arrives in Newcastle as part of his unmissable UK tour. Catch him live as he spins his epic garage beats alongside Wigflex founder, Lukas Wigflex, for an extended all-nighter!



High-flying rock tunes

A night of rip-roaring indie rock belters will be flying out the speakers at Riverside, as Gang of Youths touch down from Sydney on their exclusive UK tour! Settle in for an electric night as the boys serenade us with their thumping tunes.



Brekkie delights at MRKT

An action-packed weekend in the Toon awaits, so it’s only right you kick-start your Sunday with gorgeous brekkie treats from NE1’s newest coffee shop, MRKT! An uber-cool spot on Pilgrim Street, head here for beautiful bagels, a rich flat white and door-stop pastries!



Mornings at the market...

Enjoy a Sunday saunter down to the Quayside! Grab a coffee, take in the river views and shop hidden gems at the Quayside Sunday Market. Think handmade crafts, clothing and ceramics. Shop the day away in the glorious Toon sunshine!


Take flight!

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved Zog comes to life at Northern Stage. A feel-good, family-friendly show, follow the story of Zog on his quest to win a golden star at Madam Dragon’s school. A hilariously uplifting production awaits!



Grub with Gusto

Tuck into a delicious, five-star Sunday roast at Gusto! Situated on our iconic Quayside, enjoy local meats and fluffy Yorkshire puds, topped off with a flute of something fizzy! Sundays done right!



What a hoot!

Laugh the night away as stand-up legend and best-selling novelist, Rob Newman, arrives at The Stand! Attempting to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3,000 years of thought, join Rob for a delightful dose of intelligent comedy!



DJ turn it up!

Keep the weekend party popping at Persistence this Sunday night. It’s the go-to Tup Tup party for all of those who aren’t ready to wave goodbye to a weekend of fun. Go here for thumping house music and cracking R&B tunes.
